How Does Online Education Work?

Plan Around Your Life

Plan Around Your Life

An online education lets you work at your own pace and be more in charge of your schedule. Classes are asynchronous, which means that you can work on course activities when your schedule permits. That means you can still juggle work and family commitments.

With Online Comes Offline

With Online Comes Offline

For your online courses you will watch or read lectures, check assignment due dates, participate in group discussions, submit coursework, take quizzes or exams and communicate with your professor all online. However, some components will remain offline. Reading your textbook, solving problems, brainstorming written assignments and studying can all be done offline.
